Well, before school started we ran off to Connecticut again (and to the Hamptons too but that post is to come). Trying to get as much lake, beach, outdoors as we can before the weather shifts. School has been gently ramping up again – I’m pleasantly surprised by how responsible Ezra is being about his work and Zoe always loves the challenge. Let’s hope it continues. Meanwhile we let the kids choose their ideal meal on this dreamy weekend…

Zoe and Luca put their life vests on, jumped in a canoe and paddled off! These little adventurers forgot to ask their parents about this…

While they still do not yet have names, it was fun to welcome 2 new little kittens to the Cornwall house. Brad picked them out and loves them to bits… two sweet little sisters who entertained the kids for a good part of the weekend. I’m just glad the kids know to be gentle with them because the cats were easily wiped out – perhaps by all the new stimulation? We are still pitching names… know of any good ones?

I’m not lying when I tell you that my kids actually do think they are warming up their little hands on the TV ‘yule log’. We usually start off Christmas watching this while making pancakes, then we drove to Connecticut to have dinner with friends and lingered there to enjoy the snow for a few days ..
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
Anyhow here are some shots of our slow start to the day in Queens, and the festive scene in Cornwall.
